LOL Crucible Of Worlds!

one of those cards that you love to play and hate to play against

There is an interesting dynamic that Wasteland and Iona bring to the meta of Legacy. Wasteland says play one color, and well... Iona doesn't agree. (see Daikoru's comment)

It's time to reprint this sucker.

Ghost Quarter? Never heard of it. Reprint please.

Well, we're going to have Encroaching Wastes in M14. Basically this, but tempered by the fact that you ALSO need four miscellaneous mana for its second ability.

Strip Mine costs less because Strip Mine has more printings. Yes being able to use the card in Legacy is a large factor but the supply on this card is far less.

One of the meanest cards in Legacy. If you invest in Legacy; start with these guys; they're always in high demand and their price only goes up.

There's a reason why every Legacy deck that doesn't depend too heavily on its colored mana-base runs 3-4. When 3 color decks run colorless producing land, then you know it's good.

A much more balanced version of the stupid Strip Mine. This is a good card to have around in Legacy; it makes basics into pretty sick tech.

The reason that Wasteland is 50 dollars and the strictly better Strip Mine is only 5-10 dollars is the fact that strip mine is banned. You can't run it in a tournament. If Strip Mine were unbanned it's price would be even higher than what wasteland's is now, and wasteland would cost less than strip mine does now.

Outmatched only by Strip Mine. The proliferation of non-basic lands in the vast majority of multi-color decks make this 95% as good. 4-5 stars for certain.

Without a doubt Strip Mine is more powerful.

However, in Type I and Legacy people often run dual lands even in a mono color deck just to gain benefit from a more versatile sideboard or cards like Engineered Explosives, in addition to all other utility and extra mana lands people utilize.

That said, Wasteland in most cases are just as good as Strip Mine since nonbasic lands are more powerful and tend to be the ones that need to be destroyed. One can technically run a deck without a single basic land, but it's very rare that one would run no nonbasic lands at all. Wasteland will always finds its targets.
